The EC5 error indicates a short detected in one of your cartridges. Try to open the printer cover and remove both your cartridges. Close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first. Close the cover. If no error, open the printer cover again and reinsert the other cartridge. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error. You can also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.

Hello. You can check the error codes that Lexmark printers show on this web page . . . . .
If your inks are new, just take the cartridge back to the supplier as sometimes a new one can be defective slightly.
Most likely though, the error can be got around by taking the cartridge back out, and finding its copper contacts panel, and very very gently cleaning that with something suitable. Make sure that you DO NOT get any cleaning fluid on the actual print nozzles as this will cause chaos when printing later.
I use foam cleaner, or SERVICOL spray to clean such things when working on them.
I hope that helps.

Dell color cartridges

this sounds wierd to tell you

take out the cartige and if you can take out the cartige holders ( try to reach for the place where the ink flows out) spray it with a glass cleaning solution and let it pass inside where the ink pases and believe it or not it will clean properly the ink passages. try to clean the bottom of the cartige too.

some 1 trid it infront of me and it worked.

ps: an unproper positioning of the cartige will cause the printer not to work.
